City of Mason's head swim coach Ken Heis earned his American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA) Level 5 Certification.
There are five levels that reflect a coach's level of academic training, experience, and achievement. Only 3% of the 13,000 swim coaches who have been ASCA certified have earned the highest Level 5 certification.
Every coach in the country has to be USA Swimming certified. That is the lowest, base level of certification. Being ASCA Certified means that the City of Mason commits to annual professional development training, just like any other profession.
